Yeah Welcome to the show Welcome to the T. Karras show We got a hell of a show for you tonight I'm gonna be spittin' it raw With them scriptures Know what I mean When I say that music is therapy And it's therapeutic to me I don't know how I'm going to say this Cause this is honest as fuck, know what I mean This goes out to those who defy my shine Those who lie behind my back and slander my rhymes Like I was the same person from a decade ago Yeah I’m stupid as fuck but I know how to flow The words that I spit are honest and legit I ain’t on no bullshit cause my life’s a flick A tragedy for the ages cause I feel the pain The shame made me deranged, now I’m completely insane My motto is, I don’t care about the bullshit out there I got a pair, I face them head on, I ain’t scared They can beat me up, they can throw me in jail But I’ll never break. I’m strong as fuck, never frail You know those people at the sports bar, I’m not their type I ain’t interested in games, I’m trynna avoid them fights But heed my words, there’ll be trouble if you fuck with me I’m a punching bag who fights as strong as Hercules I’ve seen a lot of crazy shit during my lifetime People claim to be sane but they ain’t in the right mind It doesn’t help that I’m the fall guy, the gullible fish And I don’t even get a say, can you believe this shit? Eighty percent of friends turn to enemies on a dime They’d say anything to take you down and no I ain’t lyin’ What reason do I have? I got nothin’ to lose I don’t need your attention, I’ve been front page news I’ve been there and done that, been abused by police Been beat up by thugs in the middle of the street I ain’t deal drugs, jack cars or act all gangsta I tell my story as it is, Yo I’m not a faker You don’t wanna take a listen, you’re losing out On some real hip-hop that’ll rock the house Don’t compare me to the majors, I’m independent My lyrics hard as hell. Don't even try to comprehend it Now do you realize how hard it is for me to say this shit For me to be honest For me to express myself without people flippin' out at every possible angle You don't realize do you But I do Cause I said it And now it's written In the bible of raw scriptures I'm out

Fckd Up Life 03:16
I live a fucked up life I live a fucked up life I live a fucked up life I live a fucked up life I live a fucked up life Filled with misery and trife I live a fucked up life Cause my brain ain't right I live a fucked up life Filled with misery and trife I live a fucked up life Cause my brain ain't right I’m lost and confused in a sea of bullshit You’re probably thinkin’, how’d I get myself into this Well I was born into this life filled with pain and confusion The doc told me that I’d end up with the conclusion Like stuck in a mental ward or a group home for life I didn’t feel like the assessment was even right I tried everything I could to get off that path But I always end up facin’ everybody’s wrath I never did anything, I was trying to learn Trying to get rid of bad habits but they always return Everything was futile cause I’m stuck like this I’m always asking God why the fuck I exist I try to be good, I always end up a hater I guess fuckin’ up will always be in my nature I don’t know what I’m doin’, how do I even fit in Why am I always forced to live a life of sin I live a fucked up life Filled with misery and trife I live a fucked up life Cause my brain ain't right I live a fucked up life Filled with misery and trife I live a fucked up life Cause my brain ain't right Man, what the fuck is wrong with my subconscious It’s always feeding my brain with utter fuckin' nonsense Like you should feel bad for the shit that you did Even though the shit doesn’t even register a hit On the richter scale, still I feel very frail Depression hits me hard, makes me think I failed How am I supposed to fight this when I’m so in tune With my feelings, man I’m always gonna be doomed I can’t make a simple mistake without them ganging up Makes me think that the societal system is corrupt It doesn’t even matter, why the fuck does it matter Makes me sadder to the point where I get even madder Why am I so patient, why don’t I ever give up Why can’t I make it so that I don’t give two fucks I’m just waiting for a sign, just give it to me God I’m tired of fighting against all these odds I live a fucked up life Filled with misery and trife I live a fucked up life Cause my brain ain't right I live a fucked up life Filled with misery and trife I live a fucked up life Cause my brain ain't right

Prophet 03:12
I've been searching for purpose since the day I was born And this is the purpose god has given me They say if you got lemons you make lemonade Well... I'm making lemonade I’m a modern day prophet Fightin’ against the nonsense So fuckin’ conscious I’m a product of the toxins I’m a modern day prophet Tired of the nonsense They wanna see me drop Throw everything you got, I ain’t ever gonna stop I feel like a prophet with the life I’ve been given I spread my knowledge through the words that I have written I got a purpose, a mission to get rid of the bullshit They want to hypnotize me but I always resist I’ve been nailed to the cross, stripped of everything that’s mine All because I dare defy the norms that keep people blind But that won’t stop me from doin’ what I’m supposed to do You can assassinate me and my words will still ring through You can test my faith, I’ll never lose it I’m already a pariah cause I act so foolish Even if you bring me down, I’ll get right up I’ll never believe your lies so just shut the fuck up I may not be Malcom X or MLK I may not be Kapernick but I know I’m brave I ain’t a sellout or a shrill, I’m motherfuckin’ real And this ain’t motherfuckin’ spiel, you already know the deal I’m a modern day prophet Fightin’ against the nonsense So fuckin’ conscious I’m a product of the toxins I’m a modern day prophet Tired of the nonsense They wanna see me drop Throw everything you got, I ain’t ever gonna stop I stand for peace and unity amongst everybody No fuckin’ agendas, fuck the illuminati And fuck the industry for pushin’ gangsta shit on everyone White kids trynna be black?, that shit is dumb I don’t know who to blame for this modern day tragedy Is it the devil or ourselves, I can’t even believe That there’s blood on the streets, and they don’t do nothin’ When there’s a riot goin’ on, all the people be frontin’ They say they’re against the abuse but it still goes on They say they’re against the hatred but it still goes strong There’s less rights compared to say ten or twenty years ago Can’t even protest, I’d get arrested by the popo I’ve had people believe police reports over me I’ve been treated differently cause my views just speak For themselves, this world is hell, I’ve gotta shine the light I got this knowledge so I’m ready for the fight Bring it on And I ain't afraid of you motherfuckers Bring your pitchforks and torches, I don't care I know I'm going to die, I ain't scared Is this the price I pay for trying to make a better world? At least I care

The Curse 02:53
It feels like I’ve been cursed It feels like nobody understands And it’s a curse that’s weighing me down Why oh why do I have this condition It feels like I’ve been cursed Livin’ with autism really does hurt It feels like nobody understands It feels like nobody gives a damn And it’s a curse that’s weighing me down I can’t keep myself afloat, feels like I’m gonna drown Why oh why do I have this condition It’s like I’m fucked up by my own admission I’ve been in situations, every day, every night I survived all the stress, I survived all the fights And It took a huge toll on my mental health Just a consequence of tryna learn the rules of hell They always change, they never remain the same This world is insane, it leaves me rackin’ my brain There’s no common good, it’s a free-for-all They don’t want to share, they want to have it all How do terrible fuckers get off scot free And why do they always blame it on me I get no support, I get no sympathy Everybody watchin’ like it’s the Truman show on TV It feels like I’m public enemy number one Livin’ my life with autism just ain’t no fun When they expect you to fail right from the start I’m trynna play my part but they make it so hard It feels like I’ve been cursed Livin’ with autism really does hurt It feels like nobody understands It feels like nobody gives a damn And it’s a curse that’s weighing me down I can’t keep myself afloat, feels like I’m gonna drown Why oh why do I have this condition It’s like I’m fucked up by my own admission I’m a good person at heart but they say I’m bad Like I'd do shit on purpose to get people mad I’m so socially inept, I can’t even forget Why the fuck is this world filled with disrespect It got me to the point where I just want to cry And then I get depression and I just want to die They ain’t practice what they preach, they all want war Holy fuck people are crazy, I can’t stand them anymore With their self-entitlement and their hypocriticism They’ve gotten to a point where they won’t listen To reason, they don’t think for themselves They just follow the herd with no souls in their shells Sometimes I wish I was normal so I wouldn’t have to worry Sometimes I doubt myself, thinkin’ am I really worthy Have I truly found myself?, am I really pretendin’ Are you listenin'? Do I have your attention It feels like I’ve been cursed Livin’ with autism really does hurt It feels like nobody understands It feels like nobody gives a damn And it’s a curse that’s weighing me down I can’t keep myself afloat, feels like I’m gonna drown Why oh why do I have this condition It’s like I’m fucked up by my own admission

I see what the problem is Too much fake shit, not enough real shit, you know what I mean Like you fakers understand what the problem is When you don't understand at all and that's what's causing our downfall you know I can’t breathe Can’t you see I need me some air Seems like y’all don’t care Y’all be suffocatin’ me with the pressure to conform I look around and see everything’s wartorn Fights everywhere you go, everybody’s on edge Psychological warfare has messed with people’s heads To the point where nobody knows what to believe They all fightin’ for the spotlight, it’s just misery Even the TV be tellin’ y’all what to do It’s like we’re enslaved to those rich people’s views I’ve been fighting for freedom and equality for all Now it seems like it’s futile to see change at all Apathy’s taken over, they don’t give a shit There’s too many two-faced people who aren’t even legit Comittin’ abuse of all kinds to feel the power I face them head on, I ain’t a fuckin’ coward Yet they clap back, sayin’ I’m a fuckin’ asshole Get the knee off my throat, I can’t breathe anymore I can’t breathe Can’t you see I need me some air Seems like y’all don’t care I scream my name out, tell the cop that I can't breathe He got his foot up on my neck, it's just some crazy scene And I'm just a black man just trynna do my best And fuck the police, I have to say it with my chest They got their camera on, they got they gun in they hip They rock the same color talkin' about a gun and a clip They talkin' about, we gon serve and protect That ain't what they been doin' cause they keep the gun straight to my neck Why you think I walk in the buildin' demandin' respect Like I'm a black man so I ain't playin' with all of the rest I keep it real and I know I'm runnin' drills The same army but it's different how I'm servin' all these skills Did they read me my rights? I don't think so That just means that I'm free to go, I ain't got no time for no talkin' bro And I'm for real, in this rap game yeah I'm lyrical But with all you funk punk police, it's so pitiful I can’t breathe Can’t you see I need me some air Seems like y’all don’t care

Human Inside 03:36
I’m human inside I ain’t no robot I’m human inside I ain’t no robot I’m human inside, I ain’t no robot I got feelings inside, I cry them tear drops I don’t hide who I am cause that’s just fake I’m aware of my reality, I’m aware of my fate If I told you I was human, would you believe I ain’t perfect, I make mistakes consistently I let delusions in my mind take control of my life My brain ain’t right cause I’m addicted to the vice Like the rush and feelings that I use to escape My own self-doubt and insecurity, I’m filled with hate For myself. I don’t know how it would turn out If I didn’t have problems always weighing me down You might hate me for the way I cope and react Sayin’ slurs, bein’ offensive, I know I’m better than that I educate myself daily to escape the trap But I can’t escape autism and that’s a fact So I guess I’m always doomed to be self-destructive It’s like I’m playin’ a game with no simple instructions Hopin’ for the day I can find forgiveness for myself And escape this pain that has me trapped livin’ in hell I’m human inside, I ain’t no robot I got feelings inside, I cry them tear drops I don’t hide who I am cause that’s just fake I’m aware of my reality, I’m aware of my fate If you got to know me, would you understand Or would you think that I do not give a damn I speak honesty and truth with every word that I say And no I ain’t playin’ games, that’s just plain cray I give respect regardless of who they might be I don’t care about gender or identity And if you think I care about sex and all that You gotta realize that I’m better than that You might think that I'm addicted to the conflict I don't like to beef, that drama always persists Trynna be though can straight up destroy your life I don't need to try, I'm already good on the mic I can’t read people, I couldn’t if I tried I don’t know what is goin’ on inside your mind I'm livin' just like you, my only focus is me Screw the tomfoolery, everybody should be happy And that the truth I'm preachin' here Screw living in conflict, screw livin' in fear The only thing we have to fear is fear ourselves And that's the only way we'll get ourselves out of this hell Those are the raw scriptures right there
